I don't regularly go to this forum so I have no idea if this has been done before, but I've seen a couple slightly worse XKCD comics and decided to try my hand at one.

There is a higher than average chance this has been done before.

All the recent cancer comics had me thinking Randall would do something like this...

Comic title: Loss

Image

Here's one I think I heard mentioned a while back, and that I anticipate being mentioned: "Tim Randall will never do a miscarriage cancer because then the comic strip will become all sad and depressing".

662 | 756 | 867 | 933 <-- Where I got the heads from.
The comic itself is of course based on the infamous CADbortion strip.

I just thought some of these points had to be made.
